UNITED STATES (NEWS10) – A smaller cast of republican presidential candidates are preparing to return to the main debate stage for the first time this year.
Front runner Donald Trump will be center stage for the main debate with his number one contender, Ted Cruz, standing to his left.
On Wednesday at a rally Trump called Cruz’s citizenship into question while also responding to South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley after she admitted to calling out him and other members of her own party.
“One of the commentators said to me, Gov. Haley said I’m an angry person. I said I am. I’m very angry because I hate what’s happening to our country,” said Trump.
“What I would say to Mr. Trump is don’t take it personally,” Nikki Haley replied.
This will make for an interesting debate as the party leaders head to South Carolina for Thursday night’s debate. The main debate starts at 9 p.m. on the Fox Business Network.
An earlier debate will be held at 6 p.m. with the bottom four candidates.
